"🎁🎁🎁$24.99 Oakley Sunglasses Sale! ENDS TOMORROW! Summer Essentials Are Here! Shop Now: www.oakleyfriday.com"
When I looked up www.oakleyfriday.com on google, I found that the site had no description, and yet it looked exactly like the Oakley site. All the sunglasses are priced at $24.99, very suspicious as oakleys are not cheap and mathematically would make Oakley loose money. Obviously a fake site and I recommend looking into this site and it's owners about identity fraud.

All I received was ":)" and haven't received anything since I asked who it was.
Fid not want to get billed 1.50
Again same never watched or downloaded anything, some banners forwarded to several other websites which then closed browser on phone. Have e-mailed for refund as this is ridiculous and illegal. How can the phone company let them charge this to our phone account. Checked online and indeed there is a £6 charge already in there unbelievable

Checked my phone at 5pm (not on me whilst working) and saw that I had this message from 88101 at 1.30pm today:
Free Msg: Text SCAN to 88101 to complete your subscription. Help 08000155139. Join Android Protection Pro subscription for £4.50/week until you reply stop.
My phone then proceeded to start downloading something from Kaspersky over and over again - racking up 6.5GB of mobile data which I have now been charged for in addition to the text charges. I have texted STOP and had confirmation that this was accepted. Need to speak to Vodafone in the morning and find out what the heck is going on...
mssg came from this number from someone named Joanne: stated 'you wanted it' and gave a link to snurl.com...we didn't click the link, but I did try it on my home pc by typing it in manually. It was a video clip about 'Make $5000 in one day!' sort of deal. I have no idea how they got our number, but my husband deleted before I could find anything else in the mssg or text stop as a reply.
I got a text at 4:30pm sayin Zul Karnain to you: hellooo.

Received Sept.15,2014 @ 702p
Using my I phone and safari browser 1.40 AM 16/09/2014 to find out of all things name of U2's latest album when page redirect to X Funkey website. 5 times I tried to close down page before page cleared got up to find text or receipt as they call it saying I was being charged £30 for 5 films downloaded.
As others have done contacted 020 3 540 5930 number in text left message to the effect down loads were unintentional. Checked my EE bill and yes 5 charges of £6.00 with Ref no 700158004 were billed to my account £30 unbelievable. Contacted EE prior to seeing everyones advice and complained about what happened and yes was told the third party excuse however the would credit back half the money to my next bill. Interesting enough I've seen a missed call from from the 0207 798 2800 which
Text came through with religious icon attached to the address. Deleted the text
texting information from salt lake city Utah events. My attempts to reply STOP to the number always "fail" to send immediately, even though I can text any other number.
Message in German...
3919 ist Ihr Yahoo! Bestätigungscode
I did not request a code from Yahoo.
The free draw cost £4.50 taken out of my mobile phone account immediately. Sent immediate text asking to withdraw my name and number, but received no acknowledgment. Won't know until next month whether successful.
Same 'non-fault accident' rubbish. TPS registered number but that rarely makes a difference these days.
they hacked my FB account and took over.. I cannot get them out of it..
Don't know if stop will help anyways. The number changes by one number every time. I have gotten 10 messages already today in 8 hours
Nothing was messaged only a bubble showed up
They send these all the time. I don't even use Walmart for prescriptions. I think the STOP must just tell someone they have an active number. Sounds like a scam to me.
Unsolicited text to my verizon phone stating "You may have insurance benefits remaining for 2014. Call 563-359-9165 to schedule necessary dental work or a cleaning
Can you delete my number from your phone list and stop sending me texts. Thank you
Luv u guys ! (From Greece)
I was charged for this message. CON CON CON
No number to reply stop to it said in the text it was from magic radio.com.
Spoken to Tmobile who have said they will refund me the £3.00 and blocked this text number from contacting us.
I have a message for you, Kindly reach me on this email address for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
stop didnt work
This is for real. I looked up my Chase account and called the rep and there was a fraudulent charge on my account.
Don't reply to the message not even with stop. Instead call your provider mine was EE/Orange. Who didn't help at all..
They usually don't tell you this but get them to (the network provider) to cancel premium rate services on your account, this will stop you from receiving anymore, then call Offcom and report it on 020 7981 3040 as a complaint.
After this you must call Phone Pay on 0800 500 212 and log a complaint with them too.. There are already many complaints logged on this number which well strengthen your case. They will also seek a refund on your behalf.
Do not contact the premium service directly like EE advise that's just a road nowhere especially as the network operator benefits from each message even if they don't want to admit it!
Do this and you'll be alright and hopef
